FS- cafe au lait custom

Today’s Momoko is my latest custom up for sale on my sale page. She has been re-rooted in brunette Katsilk and has added freckles and repainted lips. Cafe au Lait has such pretty make-up but boring hair so here she is with a new hairstyle. I guess I’m on a freckle kick from the last custom I did.

Here’s a Lati I adopted from a lovely person in Spain. She’s a Lati White basic special Lily. She’s is only 4 1/2 inches tall and fits in the palm of my hand. I’ve named her Chiyo-chan. She epitomizes the word Kawaii which means cute in Japanese. She’s wearing a dress from Kelly’s wardrobe. The special body is a little taller than the basic body so there’s even smaller Lati’s than this.

Happy New Year!

New Papers

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Celebration. Here’s a Blythe of the day. She’s Ichigo Heaven and she’s modeling in front of some nice paper that my husband got me for Christmas. He also ordered Lati Lea so I’m anxiously awaiting her arrival which will probably be sometime this month.

On the doll projects I finished a cool commission I really like. The customer asked for Snow White momoko to be re-rooted with a princess hair cut and red streaks in black hair. Here are the results.

May your 2008 be great and prosperous and full of happiness and peace.
Happy doll day!

Girls of Fall

Time flies and then I realize I haven’t updated in a while. I decided to take some pictures so here’s my Momokos of the day. I also took pictures of all my Petwork’s Momokos and will profile each one that I have. I found out through taking these pics that I have 12 of these original beauties. I really do prefer them to the Sekiguchi model and will probably thin that collection a little bit. Of course, many are candidates for customs.

There’s just something about the Petworks and now Close Clipped Sheep dolls that make them so alluring. They’re are definitely better quality as far as the heads go and they just have a clean simplicity and innocence. Sometimes the Sekiguchi dolls look too made-up for my taste.

On the customizing front I’ve got several works in progess and am finding it difficult to get at least one of them completed. The Blythes in particular have been giving me trouble. My black Blythe doesn’t want to hold the special paint on her body so she stays on the back burner untill I can get the paint on the legs just right. I ran out of hair on a custom Hello Harvest that I was re-rooting and then yesterday I was trying to airbrush her make-up and either would screw it up or just when I had it right the paint would get scratched. I ended up having to completely remove my hardwork and start all over again this morning. Finally I was fresh enough to get it right and now she just waits on more hair. I can’t wait to get her done and post pictures. She’s quite the stunner! A customer has already laid claim on her so I don’t get to keep her and it might sting a little to let her go. But hopefully, she’ll be thrilled as that’s the best reward for me.

I finish off with a picture of my DaBi wearing Blythe Closet Fashions. We did a trade and I must say both of us are very satisfied with our trade. YAY!

Black Blythes and more

Beach Rodeo for Melissa

Well it’s been crazy busy here trying to do too many things at once. This is the last Beach Rodeo in a string of commissions. I think I did upwards of seven Beach Rodeos out of all the re-roots in the past 2 1/2 months. She’s a real popular one who’s original stock is pretty underwhelming but with new hair and style she really stands out.

On the Blythe front, I’m making up for lost time as I take a break between commission projects. I’ve got a few works in progress re-rooting one, dyeing hair on others and my first black blythe. Here’s her sneak peak.

I’ll definitely be doing more of these delicious beauties. I have to also do one just for me if I ever get the chance.

I’ve been customizing a Tailor Gibson as well. I dyed her hair and gave her a bob. I also gave her all new make-up and changed her chips around. I’m not sure if she’s done yet. I may try to get her hair darker but not sure.

So as you can see the past week was a busy one. I also made a new dolly friend and had a dolly meet with her. She sews and in fact calls herself Sewpixie and makes the cutest dresses which she’s finally offering up for sale.

Till next time, have a happy dolly week!

Pretty Colors!

For Melissa

Well as one can guess I’m still busy with all these re-root commissions. I’m so busy with them that I’m not always able to take proper pictures of them before sending them off to the customer. Howecer, here’s my latest and she’s one that really jumps out with her sky blue hair. I just love the results and the customer is quite thrilled as well. Cafe au Lait has such a pretty face too that I love using her as a base doll for momoko re-roots.

In Blythe land my Dainty Biscuit arrived and she looks so much better in person than her promo pics put out by CWC. A lot of people were scared off by those pictures and if I had been able to cancel my pre-order, I might have done so based on those pictures. But as you can see with her out of box pictures she’s so much prettier than the promo pics made her out to be.

I’m so glad I got her. I’ve been wanting a pink haired Blythe for a while but the ones that are out are pricey. She looked to be an affordable alternative other than re-rooting. This picture is her stock hair and make-up. But then on flickr, another contact posted pics of her after straightening her frizzy hair and I just fell in love and got out the straigtening iron on my girl. In the process, her lashes got too wet and fell out so I had to replace them. She’s looking pretty sweet and I will take some new pictures of her with her more mangeable hair and new lashes.

But the re-roots call me back to work so it will have to wait till next time.

Have a Happy Dolly week all!
